Shady Ladies and End of Days: Tuesday Is for Tipplers

Posted By on Tue, May 17, 2011 at 1:57 PM

Between the cold, soggy spring weather and this weekend's Rapture

(aka End of Days), a few drinks on a Tuesday night should be all the

comfort you really need. Warm up your insides at either of these events, while making

your last few days on Earth count. Anyway, use the excuse to.

Vermouth Seminar with Sutton Cellars

Where: The Boothby Center, 1161 Mission (at Eighth St.)
When: Today, May 17, 7-9 p.m.
Cost: $25; tickets online
The rundown: S.F. wine and vermouth maker Carl Sutton leads a discussion on the production and history of aromatized and aperitif wines, with a tasting. From the botanicals used to the wines' application in cocktails, the course covers not only Sutton Cellars vermouths but a whole range, from big brands to boutique products. Class includes a couple of martinis, the best educational tool ever.

Sacramento's Shady Lady Saloon at Mr. Lew's Win Win

Where: Mister Lew's Win Win Bar and Grand Sazerac Emporium, 441 Jones (at Ellis), 474-2284 
When: When: Tue., May 17, and Wed, May 18, 7 p.m.-2 a.m.
Cost: No-host bar
The rundown:

Sacramento may not always get attention for its fine cocktail

craftsmanship, but a whole host of S.F.'s best cut their teeth in the

state capital ― Erick Castro, Jayson Wilde, and Kyle and Rachel Ford are just a few of the folks who transitioned over. The Shady Lady

is one of NorCal's finest, so expect great drinks and creativity. Don't

be surprised if the guest bartenders start making more regular

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
